Summary: Purchased this MP3 player in April 2005. Worked great for twelve months - then I had a problem - it was stuck in FM mode, and I could not turn it off (unless I pulled out the batteries each time). Went to the Creative Labs web site for support - nothing there to help my situation - then I sent an email - and they told me that they WOULD NOT ASSIST ME, and then refered me back to the web site. They also gave me a phone number to call - but that IT WOULD COST ME [...
Summary: I could shoot myself for purchasing another MuVo Micro as an Xmas gift for my daughter. Yes I have purchased two in the past year and both have failed. The first one died after 10 months of use and the second unit (gift to daughter) failed within 2-weeks after she received it. I really love these little players and their relatively ease of use including their compatibility with Windows Media Player, but both will not turn on and play back.
Summary: I have been through two of these units, and neither one operated properly for more than a few hours. I spent hours corresponding with Creative's help desk trying to correct the "programming error" on the first unit, and nothing worked. I finally returned it and got a replacement, which also malfunctioned after the first use.
Summary: As an early adopter I appreciate the Muvo's wonderful features as all other high reviewers had mentioned. The noise during playback was annoying, but I mainly use the unit to record cassette into MP3s. After 4 months of usage, it suddenly died, as all other low reviewers experienced. But at least their warranty is still in effect.
Summary: I bought this MP3 player in March to use while working out. Initially, it was great and I found it to be a necessary accessory to my work out. About a month ago the scroll button stopped working so I could no longer skip songs when I wanted to. While this was annoying, I could live with it. This week it stopped working all together. I can press the power button and I see the start up screen and then it just dies. Now I have to go out and buy a new one.
Summary: I bought this MP3 player as a gift for my boyfriend. He has used it for a month. Only a month, and it suddenly doesn't work. It only plays songs once in a while, and the display screen doesn't even work. We cannot even skip through songs- it doesn't work. My boyfriend did not mistreat the player in any way, so there is no reason for it to suddenly not work, other than it being poorly made. I am very disappointed that I wasted the time buying it.
Summary: I have had my player four about 4 months as a gift. i thought it was the greatest little gadget i owned. But two weeks ago it started acting up. At first, it would shut off by itself. Then it began making this annoying noise and not playing the music. The music would probably come on (if it felt like it) if i kept shutting it on and off several times. now it does not come on at all. absolutely no power- and no it isn't the battery.
Summary: My Muvo Micro player worked fine for like, a month. Then the problems started. I'd turn it on, and the screen would flash, and then die. I used several batteries to try to fix the problem. Now it doesn't turn on altogether. This is more of a plea for help rather than a bashing. Does anyone know how to fix this?! And suggestions?!
Summary: I purchased one for myself, one for my husband for Father's Day. They started out GREAT, easy to use, great sound quality, long battery life. Within two weeks, his stopped running. He thought it was the belt clip rubbing on it, but no. He tried several different batteries, that wasn't the problem. Then MINE started to die. Again, not the batteries. Whenever I turn it on, it lights up, acts like it's about to start playing something, then turns itself off. One, maybe.
